We harvest and analyze millions of permit and inspection records nationwide for builders and the banks who finance them

The contractor hiring experience is fraught with risk

There's an agency problem in the trades; contractors know more about their fit for a project than you do

We know what good and bad contractors look like

We're calculating new metrics like inspection pass rate and construction speed using public permit and inspection records

We exist to de-risk contractor hiring and financing

Millions of permit and inspection records inform our models and analyses
